Hybrids

Sometime last summer while experimenting with what exactly I wanted to do with the new digital medium I’m now immersed in, I did several “hybrid” pieces of art. They were half traditional, half digital. This one has the color blocked in with gouache, and then it is finished out digitally on the Cintiq.

The Comments

Zaz

Good Morning DJ, For my own education, what part of this piece was done with the Cintiq? The old Dennis style, real clean looking. It was good to see your Colts pull it out yesterday in the second half you’ve got to be some what pleased.

Jason Bourne

Tubular. Nice texture on the tree an it looks like you can feel it.

Don Jones

Fantastic. You were hybrid before hybrid was cool.

Bernard

This is the great use of color and subject art style that first got me looking for you back around ‘93-’95 I think you were born to create this kind of art. Makes me want to go and get my first Concordia, Simon “The First Christmas ” book out again! Just love this work.

…man, it’s been a typical Monday for me… and quarterly tax day to boot… arrghh… hey, how ‘bout dem Chiefs? …can anybody say new Chiefs coach Bill Cower? Doug, your Titans are leading the Colts in the division… for now… Zaz, I punched up the color and added the highlights n stuff… actually, I can’t really remember what I did… I’m still in a love/hate relationship with painting on the computer… sometimes it all works and it’s great, and other times I want to throw all this gear out the window and apply for the greeter job down at Walmarts…

Doug Jones

It’s funny… the paper here said the 2-0 start for the Titans is the first time they have had a 2-0 start since 1999… when they went to the Super Bowl… Looks like we’re going again this year… right? … right?

Dennis Jones

…if it said that in a newspaper it must be true… Congratulations!

Bernard

New Chiefs Coach, Bill Cower.

Jason Bourne

What a game it was last night! Thats what football is all about!

Don Jones

Keegan was sitting in the end zone… I called him after the Felix JONES kick-off TD return.

Dennis Jones

…Keegan couldn’t have picked a better game to go to…

Don Jones

It even sounded fantastic on AM Radio.

Dennis Jones

…wha? ..were you and your family all huddled around the gigantic old tube radio in your living room, sitting in rocking chairs, knitting and listening to the scratchy radio play by play, or what? …good night, John boy…

Don Jones

Janz and I were driving back from the Fun Acre Miniature Golf Course and Spa in Springfield listening in the Hummer. (Hummer of a heap Honda)

Bernard

Dear Jones Boys, you know how I hate to go off topic but this is a business proposition ( and a whole lot faster than email )! Would y’all consider renting me your gnarly pencil art-piece ( from the brotherjones.com homepage ) to use on a blog I’m building? It wouldn’t be prominently displayed as is yours but used as a teeny-tiny category/comment post icon(s) for the site? …you would be able to visit, raid and discredit me whenever you felt like it? c’mon whaddya say? LMK, BernardFromTheYard

Don Jones

Do hear about the cannibals that ate a missionary… They got a taste of religion.

Dennis Jones

…I’m not sure if Don was speaking in the King’s English on that last comment or if he was impersonating Yoda again… Bernard, send me an email…

Dom Philibert

Awesome!!!!!! love your color scheme.

Dennis Jones

…WOW, Dominic I’m your new biggest fan! …your artwork is amazing…

Bernard

WOW…is right! Great Stuff Dom…Denn, it’s okay, my adreneline has fizzled and I’ve gone to Philly so see if there are any chewed up, broken pencils left at Lincoln field to model my new blog icons after. Talk about a “Sacl-Attack”.
